Diagnostic Imaging

The Imaging Department - sometimes called the X-ray or Radiology Department - is where we carry out radiological examination of patients. These examinations include various tests which can help us diagnose or confirm a diagnosis for many medical problems.

We provide services to adults and children from NUH and regionally, covering inpatients, outpatients, direct access from GP services and the Emergency Department, supporting our Major Trauma Centre.

We have extensive diagnostic imaging facilities at QMC and Nottingham City Hospital. Diagnostic Imaging is the creation of images mainly through the use of X-rays, ultrasound (sound waves) or MRI (magnetic fields). Our department includes:

  • Main X-ray department
  • Paediatric department
  • Orthopaedic clinic

  • CT scanners
  • Emergency department/fracture clinic X-ray
